    Intel VT-x Enable?


    I need to enable Intel VT-x in order to run VMWare on my laptop. I cannot find where to enable it in my BIOS and I was wondering if there is any alternate way I can turn it on. I am using a Lenovo Thinkpad W540 and it is running on Windows 10.

  3. How to use VMware Workstation in Windows 10 Home Edition?

    Preferred mode unavailable. Using binary translation instead.

    This host supports Intel VT-x, but Intel VT-x is disabled.

    Intel VT-x might be disabled if it has been disabled in the BIOS/firmware settings or the host has not been power-cycled since changing this setting.

    (1) Verify that the BIOS/firmware settings enable Intel VT-x and disable 'trusted execution.'

    (2) Power-cycle the host if either of these BIOS/firmware settings have been changed.

    (3) Power-cycle the host if you have not done so since installing VMware Workstation.

    (4) Update the host's BIOS/firmware to the latest version.

    Intel VT-x Enable?

    It's under Config - > CPU

    After enabling you must do a full shutdown and and VMWare will align itself on start.

    I am unable to find anything with Intel Virtual Technology anywhere in the BIOS. I guess the only step is to update my BIOS, but I heard that is very risky. Is there any other way to enable Intel VT-x?

    I have access to my graphics settings but I don't know if that will help.

    Nope GPU settings are not it - it is a microprocessor feature - from this link it appears not all W540 CPU's support VT-x.
    In which case a bios update will not help either.
